KB HISTORY IN THE MAKING

KB HISTORY IN THE MAKING

21/11/2020

 

2020 has presented KB Chief Instructor, Kelly Bunyan, with plenty of new challenges. From finding the best way to teach online, then working out how to grade KB Members in Kickboxing in June, thereafter, grading KB Kung Fu Members in August.

Kelly has always graded KB Kung Fu members during her Kickboxing classes, taking the idea of multi-tasking to the next level. For the August grading, she elected to set a separate date. 

However, one of the school's longest standing members, Sue Pindar, had a fall and was unable to attend the grading. To accommodate her, in November 2020, Kelly set herself the challenge of teaching online Kickboxing classes, whilst simultaneously grading Sue online.

Thankfully, the mission was accomplished and Sue was overjoyed, to be passing her next sash remotely. When one of the school’s stalwarts grades, after being in the school for 17 years, it causes a positive stir. The outpouring of love and support through the school's channels of communication were demonstrable of the sense of community within KB Fitness, as well as confirming the fact that everybody's success is celebrated. Such a positive, unique space is incredibly rare.

Kelly (KB) said: "Grading somebody online in Kung Fu, whilst teaching Kickboxing was a great experience. This year has been an excellent year for presenting me with new challenges. Sue's celebratory dance was so moving! I LOVED sharing that moment with her and my other members. As we enter our 22nd year of existence, bring on the next phase of KB History!"

Sue added: "I am totally amazed at your ability to know and understand each and everyone of your students needs and abilities. You always know when to push, when to really push, when to really really push and when an arm around the shoulder is needed!! And it’s because of this, that 17 years after my first KB Fitness class, I’m still here reaching new heights, continuously learning, still getting excited for Grading Days (be it my own or my peers) and having SO MUCH fun and laughter - THANK YOU. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ 

After all the congratulations I received after achieving my goal of Orange Sash .... I want to CONGRATULATE YOU on creating such an awesome Martial Arts School, where everyone is welcome; the exceptionally high standard of instruction we are given; for the safe environment you have created for all of us to train in and where egos are left at the door and love enters the dojo. Kelly you are a very special person and a beautiful soul. And I am truly honoured and lucky to have you as not only part of my Martial Arts journey but also my life’s journey."
